Philip Wolfhagen Winner of the Lloyd Rees Art Prize

Philip Wolfhagen has been awarded the Lloyd Rees Art Prize; an independently-judged, acquisitive prize that recognises an Australian landscape painter and their superior handling of light. Wolfhagen’s ‘Transitory Light’ (2017), painted with oil and beeswax on linen, was announced as the winner on July 4 by Tasmanian Governor Kate Warner. The painting is now with the Colville Gallery in Hobart, where the prize is awarded bi-annually.
